Stayed here for 1 night on Easter Sunday with my fiancé & our 2 year old daughter after spending the weekend in Blackpool. Lovely modern hotel. We had food in the bar which was fantastic and the breakfast the next morning was just as good with plenty choice. Rooms were lovely & a good travel cot was provided for our... More

Thanks to all at Smiths and the Blacksmith's shop for our wonderful wedding. All the rooms for our party exceeded expectations, the staff are really friendly and helped make our wedding a fantastic experience. I would not hesitate to recommend this to others.

We booked the 'wedding package' for our Easter Sunday 'big day' and everything went really well . We stayed a few nights in the fabulous Thistle suite ,and it really had the 'wow' factor, big freestanding bath, candles , bubbly, fire , balcony with table etc and lovely views of the countryside . Everyone was very helpful, even finding pins... More

Booked two rooms for two nights for our wedding in Feb 2015. From the greeting at reception to our actual wedding day everything was great. Staff very friendly and helpful, our friends we travelled with booked us a booth in the restaurant that we could use all day which was fantastic and leave all our drinks/cards/pressies there until we were...

Didn't stay the night but came here for a Christmas party and wasn't exactly impressed with the service. For the price there was next to no decoration visited better garden centres with more sparkle. Had to grab a clip board lady to get my starter, because they were so quick to dash away and didn't check that everyone had one.... More

Nice comfortable hotel,although dependant which side your room is on it can be noisy from the motorway. I have stayed here regularly with work recently and it's very busy most nights with wedding parties. The drink and food is expensive all though the food is good

Have stayed at Smith's many times over the years. On this visit we stayed in the Bensmoor suites. The suite was fabulous, I could have moved in permanently. The evening meal was delicious, service was first class. In fact the whole stay was first class. Thinking of trying Green's, Smith's new sister hotel but love Smith's so much I am... More

Ahhhh the dilemma PMTW, should you try Greens or stay loyal to Smiths, decisions decisions. . My suggestion would be to try both, book one night at Greens (new lobby bar area is amazing), which is a little less formal I suppose, and then take your second night at Smiths - there you go, perfect. Hopefully see you soon, Darren More

Would recommend this hotel to anyone! We had previously been booked in to a hotel in Carlisle for two nights but it wasn't good so I went online and booked smiths. I'm so glad we did. We arrived, unpacked and headed down to the bar where I had some strawberry daiquiris and my husband a few beers, we then had... More

Cheers Emma. Do you know Emma its so hard reading and replying to these posts sometimes. Its 2pm on a Tuesday afternoon and the weather is glorious right now and i've got to read about strawberry daiquiris and icey cold beers - then a bit of "relaxing" in the bedroom, sounds absolute bliss. Thanks for taking the time to post... More
